i take the photos, and i make the picture (in that order)

T’was National Day – Emirati style (12 images and 3 mistakes)

My first national day back in dubai 3 years ago, i decided to go for a drive down beach road. That was a mistake.

Last year i decided to park some distance away and find a good curb to shoot from. As a pedestrian, silly string and waterguns made light work of us. Mistake again.

This year, i drove to get shots from within the chaos, clever me. Oh wait, manual car, manual camera, manual lens, children running amidst traffic….. Fun mistake, but mistake nonetheless. Besides, i reckon i got a fair few good ones.

Suffice to say, i’ll never learn.

Also Happy 40 i guess.
